Reviewed 9 June 2017

This place was ok. We stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights. The longer we stayed the more we discovered not so good things.
1. The company requires that you send a copy of your credit card through to them in an email. I have been a victim for credit card info theft and this made me skeptical. They said in an email that they understand and will account for all charges. To when they say that, I expect them to email me a receipt or something and I got nothing. There are just way to many fees that they charge for my liking.
2. About the place: There were no pot holders to use to take stuff out of the oven so we had to use a hand towel which they charged me for. The dryer does not turn off by itself. so this thing ran all night. Thank god it didn't catch fire! The Beds were very lumpy. You can see the springs thru the mattress. Very hard to get comfortable at night after walking around the theme parks all day.

I will never stay at any property that this agency manages!!

We stayed here with my husbands family and had a ton of room. The unit was clean but a little worn. I'am pretty picky with my lodging so For me to rate a 4 it was defiantly desent and in a great location. I was happy to have very clean bathrooms and kitchen. The bedding is old and the beds were not very comfy. The pool and hot tub were great. We also had a loft with a fusball table my kids loved it.

Made the reservation via Airbnb. Cleanliness, cozyness, price and the location were things that drew my attention when I made the reservation. We had a unit just in front of the lake. Unit was very spacious, very clean and indeed cozy. Had free wi fi but didn't work well on iphones. Kitchen had everything you needed in order to cook you meals during your stay. We even got complimentary gifts from the host (wine, sodas, etc.). House also had washer and dryer, 2 flat screen tv (one in the living room and one in the main room, coffee machine, oven, all in all, it was like being at home but in Orlando. We were very close to walmart, Disney and Universal, Lake Buena Vista Outlets and even Orlando Premium Outlets. It was a very well located place. Would definitely visit again!

Room Tip: Best view to the lake

We stayed here for 10 days. Very convenient location. Stayed in a 2 bdrm villa. Rooms were spacious but villa needs a major upgrade. The furniture was ripped and falling apart. The walls were dirty and chipping paint. The refrigerator had some kind of defrosting issue. The 2nd bathroom shower was clogged and had a foot of water in it. The 2nd pool and sun deck were being resurfaced so we couldn't use them at all in our 10 day stay.
We didn't spend too much time in so none of these were a huge deal but considering there our tons of other villas around we probally won't be back unless they renovate.

No circles at all. Rate 0 (Zero)
It was unfortunate how a vacation place with the vision that it'd be a perfect family getaway was transformed into a nightmare.
Bad costumer device, strict and unreal rules about change/cancellation fees, and the lack of organization and administrative personnel, made Runaway beach club a forever DON'T DARE MAKE A RESERVATION THERE.

I was with my baby girl when doing the reservation and something happened that the dates were wrongly selected. Maybe my mistake, maybe the app, maybe the screen! As soon as I entered 'confirm payment' I realized I had the wrong dates and called to cancel.
So I had to pay almost three hundred dollars.

Unfortunately the lady who answered said she couldn't do anything for me, not even look for possible dates to change my reservation to (as the one I initially desired were not available)
She was so rude and unhelpful that I actually asked for a supervisor which she denied existed but then brought up in her argument.
Later on as I tried to solve the problem and actually told her I would hang up as soon as she looked for possible dates to make a change and not a cancellation, she said NO and hang up.
Be it hers or the supervisor's fault, the bad experience with customer service and the irrational cancellation fee make this 'dream place' a BIG NO NO.
